Book Ò The Laughing Hangman Î Edward Marston

The Laughing Hangman Ü Jonas Applegarth is a brilliant but belligerent playwright When his play The Misfortunes of Marriage is performed by Lord Westfield's Men it causes an uproar All of Applegarth's enemies attack the company Nicholas Bracewell defends the playwright loyally but alas Applegarth is soon found hanged by the neck It is only the first of many mysteries that Nicholas has to solve Lord Westfield's Men are furious when they are satirized by a rival children's theater company at the Blackfria This is the first Nicholas Bracewell book I have read I keep popping back to the Railway Detective series although I find it simplistic but this I think is better though still flawed The relationship with Anne is never explained for example But hats off to Edward Marston for his background research into the kidnapping of boys to serve as the king's choristers or players There was recently a television programme about this little known aspect of Tudor England and my husband was very surprised when I said I knew all about it having read this book Book Ò The Laughing Hangman Î Edward Marston
